O'Toole has pretty much done himself in with that statement regarding his not supporting mandatory vaccinations for all travel, federal government employment, and other miscellaneous things for which you will not be permitted to do without proof of vaccination.
O'Toole's is a ridiculous position to take, as the concept of rapid-testing obviously anticipates that the person being tested will already have COVID-19 while they're out and about walking the streets, airports, and federal office buildings across Canada.
Like Horgan (whom I simply cannot support for his calling for an election at the height of the third wave of COVID), I would otherwise be unwilling to forgive Trudeau and his Lib cohorts for calling an election during the 4th wave of the pandemic ... but in this case, the Tories have essentially brought this election on themselves with their never ending roadblocks towards a Federally mandated vaccination passport being required for a multitude of different things ... and now they make it impossible to vote for them with their "American Light" concept of minimizing the importance of vaccinations for all Canadians.
As much as I was completely prepared to throw Trudeau under the bus at the "next election" ... I definitely can not support any party that has as its platform any form of anti-vaxing framework for the future of Canada.
For O'Toole, I suspect a majority of Canadians will be sending him that same message in the polls come September, sending him packing for the next four years.
